I am sure we all know someone who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.

1. First click on a state.
2. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear.
3.Then click on their names. It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.
This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.
I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.
Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.

That site is something else. I knew two of the men. The story under their names was what I remembered hearing about their deaths. One was from my class of 1969 and he dropped out in his senior year when he turned 18 to join the Marines. He wrote a letter back to my class stating it was not a picnic over there and stay in school. He died a little over a month later by stepping on a land mine/explosive.
The other man was MIA and never found.
To many men died that's for sure.

When I was younger, I met a guy who seemed to have a few emotional problems. Had alot of family problems and I would talk with him for hours. I really enjoyed our talks. One day, I could not find him and I've always wondered what happened to him. Well, I just found him on the site, and now I know.

Years ago they had a replication of the wall that traveled all over the U.S. and a book that had everyone's names on it so you could look them up. I found 2 buddies but evidently the rest of them made it - Thank God! If you can't get to D.C. then look for the traveling wall. It can be a very emotional experience.
